    Increasingly I am coming across this expression and am wondering just how many people it applies to.
    According to the number of times I have read this particular statement it would appear that quite a lot of people fit this description.
    It seems that anyone who has done something wonderful for humanity which goes against the grain of 'establishments' is labelled thus.
    Is this a cynical attempt to persuade the masses that persons who are courageous and prepared to question what they perceive as the 'ills of society' are psychologically unbalanced and are therefore of no consequence, and only fit to be ridiculed or ignored?
